Get Ready for an Alpaca ADventure in the beautiful seaside village of Downings, Co. Donegal.

Come and enjoy the views of Downings with your very own alpaca walking friend. Suitable for adults and children over the age of 8 years

Your alpaca experience will begin with a short safety briefing where we’ll go through all the important stuff to ensure that your experience is as safe and as enjoyable as possible. You’ll then be given some treats to feed your alpaca and once you're comfortable with your alpaca we'll set off on the trail with lots of opportunity for photos along the way.

Group Numbers - Our aim is to provide a private, immersive, fun and relaxing experience in smaller groups, so we limit the number of Alpacas on each walk to 5 therefore we have a max of 12 people per alpaca walk experience. Our alpacas are much more comfortable in smaller groups to.  


Unfortunately under 8's cannot join the walking experience however we have a special meet and greet option available for them. Find out more here.

  • All under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Children aged 12+ and over will be able to walk an alpaca on their own.
  • Children aged 8 - 11 will walk alongside an adult in tandem with a second lead rope on their alpaca. Your child may be allowed to take the main lead at the discretion of the group leader when we're in a safe and calm situation to do so. However you must stay near the child if they are leading and be ready to take over if needed.

For younger children we have a farm meet and greet option.
